New Reebok Question collab honors the women in Iverson's life.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Reebok Question, the brand will be releasing a total of 20 Reebok Question collabs this year and next up on the list is this pair designed by Melody Ehsani, inspired by the women in Allen Iverson's life.
Iverson's daughters Tiaura, Messiah and Dream, and their mother Tawanna, were featured in an exclusive campaign to support the launch of this women's version of the iconic Reebok Question. Directed by Melody herself and shot by Allen's long time photographer Gary Land in Charlotte, NC, the campaign features an all over monotone aesthetic to go with the design of the shoe.
“Aside from being one of the greatest players, Iverson to me more so was a cultural leader and game changer, so I made sure to embody some of those elements into the shoe," says designer Melody Eshani.
The Reebok Question x Melody Ehsani uses three different types of color-matched leather to make up the upper, quarter and heel in order to create dimension on the tonal design. The tongue has a replica emboss of A.I's "Hold My Own" tattoo and on the back heel, there is a velcro spot that allows you to switch out different leather patch designs of 3 of his other tattoos.
The interior lining features an image of Iverson's iconic cornrows and the sock liner is a paisley print representing his iconic bandana. Additionally, the upper has a black patent toe box, the sole remains ice blue as a nod to the original Question, and the kicks come equipped with two lace options- one in tonal vegetable tan and another bungee inspired lace in black and vegetable tan.
The Reebok Question Mid x Melody Ehsani will go on sale on this Friday, December 2nd for $160 at Melody Ehsani's LA store located at 424 1/2 N Fairfax Ave, as well as www.MelodyEhsani.com and www.Reebok.com.
